Valentines Month Getaways For Romance

“Hotel Amenities With a Home Like Feel”

You don’t have to be an A-lister to be pampered like one. Here at Hillcrest House you can expect all of the accoutrements that a large hotel may offer and beyond. With your utmost privacy in mind, our newly renovated 1910 craftsman style inn offers a tranquil and inviting atmosphere combined with exemplary service.

Speaking of our service, we have been voted internationally as San Diego’s #1 Bed & Breakfast by Trip Advisor. Our spotless rooms come with 5,000 count bed sheets, plush robes as well as modern  private baths with the option of having an in-room Jacuzzi tub. We provide free wifi along with a wireless printer all accessible from your room. Not to mention, in-room cable TV/DVD, 24-hour beverages (No mini-bar charges here!), free off-street parking, buffet-style breakfast and baked goods made daily.

If you’re planning a romantic getaway, we’ve kept you in mind.  To help eliminate some of the guesswork on deciding what “romantic things to do”, we’ve made a list. In addition, our innkeeper Ann, better known as the “Neighborhood Concierge” will be glad to suggest alternatives should anything on this list fail to suit your taste.  So please, start packing! We want to welcome you to Hillcrest House, a place where you can feel right at home.


1)      San Diego Opera

“The Elixir of Love” known as a romantic comedy of Hollywood proportions, will be showcasing throughout the month of February.


2)      Dallmann’s Fine Chocolates

Offering “top shelf” chocolate from sweet to savory Dallmann’s is a confectionary boutique that presents a diverse set of flavors. From hibiscus to curry to bacon; this shop’s contemporary take on a legendary confection should prove to be quite tantalizing.

Sponsored by Macy’s, February is museum month in San Diego. Participating museums will be offering half-off admission prices.


5)      Pappalecco Coffee

Hidden off of the main street of University Avenue this coffeehouse offers a refined glimpse of Italian taste, life and tradition.

One of the many artisan vendors (Tea Gallerie) is offering luxurious rose teas the entire month of February including Oolong mixed with real rose petals. How romantic!
